So, what is iodized edible salt?

Iodized edible salt is a common kitchen ingredient that has been fortified with iodine to address iodine deficiency, a global public health problem. This essential mineral is crucial for maintaining thyroid health, cognitive function, and normal growth and development. Iodized salt is made by adding a small amount of potassium iodide or iodate to regular table salt, which ensures that people get adequate iodine in their diet. It is a cost-effective and easy way to prevent iodine deficiency disorders, such as goiter, cretinism, and hypothyroidism. Iodized edible salt is versatile and widely used in cooking, baking, seasoning, and preserving food.
